“What the theatre has given me: the ability to escape from a small, narrow, strict world to join one that is inexhaustible and multiple, one that combines literature, poetry, politics and history. This is the theatre we work on every day, to transmit it to young audiences.”
Being accessible to as many people as possible, in France and abroad, is one of the Comédie-Française’s fundamental missions. Alongside tours, all channels of dissemination are used to present its emblematic shows as well as productions designed for specific media.
Pathé Live – broadcasting live to more than 300 cinemas
The Comédie-Française is pursuing and extending its collaboration with Pathé Live. In the framework of this partnership, three plays from the season are screened in cinemas, live from the Salle Richelieu followed by repeat screenings at later times. In light of the success this scheme has enjoyed, three productions broadcast in past seasons will also be available for exceptional re-screenings. Along with the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow and the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Comédie-Française is part of the opera/ballet/theatre triptych proposed by Pathé Live on more than 300 screens throughout France and the world (reaching fifty countries). This enables it to reach out to all audiences, thanks to a network of locally embedded cinemas, and to bring the Troupe in close contact with the public. During the 2017-2018 season, more than 100,000 spectators were able to experience the productions of Les Fourberies de Scapin and Le Petit-Maître corrigé in this way, with Britannicus due to be screened on 5 July 2018. Accompanied by significant educational documentation, this scheme also enables a very large school audience to see the Comédie-Française’s productions and to enrich their experience thanks to the resources made available on the Comédie-Française and Pathé Live sites.
